Dental braces

Dental braces

The braces are small pieces of metal or other materials, which are attached to the tooth to distribute the tension generated by the arch of the orthodontic appliance. In this way, the movements that the orthodontist has planned to achieve, little by little, that you have a perfect smile are produced in your mouth.


The mouth braces correct all kinds of bite problems, position and alignment of the teeth, improving both the health and aesthetics of the patient's smile.
